Our Mission

A French company with an international presence, OVHcloud is Europe’s leading cloud provider and delivers public and private cloud products, shared hosting and dedicated server solutions in 140 countries worldwide.

We offer well-designed solutions for a changing world: our products help users to build an infrastructure that matches their goals, with an eco-friendly approach and manageable costs. Together, we’re committed to creating an open, reliable and trusted cloud!

Trust. Passion. Disruption. OVHcloud believes that people are at the core of their success and that DE&I is much more than HR politics. With an impressive 44% of women on the board, they have more than doubled their percentage in one year, and increased their female leadership in C-level positions by 11% to attain 38%. They recruit the right people for the right jobs, and they prefer skills to dogma. Still, it’s no coincidence that many of their hires are women, with qualified and talented women all over the world! They believe that change is action and they are the change they believe in!

From encouraging employees’ initiatives to providing feminine hygiene items in the company bathrooms, OVHcloud cares and takes care. At 50inTech we admire Tech changers and we love companies that put their money where their mouth is: we’re proud that OVHcloud has renewed their partnership with us. We can’t wait to embark in a new year of adventures and accomplishments with them!

Our Values

Trust

Trust is one of our core values. Trust allows our employees to be at their best and to express their talent. We transform our commitments into actions. We do not hesitate to call on others to achieve the goal that we cannot achieve on our own. We give everyone the chance to prove themselves and learn from their mistakes. We establish a collective trust with our customers and partners.

Working Together

Working together inspires everything we do.We strongly believe that individual success is a product of supporting collective success. We identify skills in order to allocate responsibilities. We make compromises without ever compromising ourselves. We never forget that we are part of a team whose whole is greater than the sum of its parts.

Passion

We are passionate. We love to share our enthusiasm. We are constantly innovating, creating, discovering, learning. We surpass ourselves to get better and better. We never abandon objectives and always follow through on our goals. With our partners and customers, we are continually seeking new solutions, better solutions. We listen to them, understand them and integrate their feedback. We do our best to always do better, to always do more.

Disruption

We know when and how to change the rules, to find solutions that respond to the latest challenges. We believe that disruption must free everyone and make life easier - simplify what is complex - change the game while taking our responsibilities. We are continually seeking to simplify our processes and organization to be more effective and reduce costs. We do not hesitate to be inventive to find our own path.  But, in all circumstances, we remain disciplined in our execution. In everything we do, we strive to create more value for our customers.

Responsibility

We assume responsibility together. We know that each innovation can be positive or negative according to how it’s used. We know the impact of our actions and therefore face our social and societal responsibility head-on. We accept no trade-off or compromise regarding the protection of customer data. We strive to act ethically in all circumstances; to create value for ourselves, our partners and our customers. We make people and their sovereignty the priority. We want Innovation for Freedom.

Our year at 50inTech

Our partnership with 50inTech has helped us impose our identity as a brand deeply implicated in women’s empowerment and DE&I actions. It has encouraged us to remain vigilant and to never relax our attention and our drive. 50inTech is a space where we can show our commitment to everyone, and perhaps most importantly, to ourselves. Sometimes it’s difficult to assess progress on DE&I policies, so it was extremely comforting and interesting to have a place where we can reflect. Also, we appreciated the events and meetups that 50inTech organizes year-round. It has allowed us to keep the discussion going inside OVHcloud.
